     That's the sort of thing I wanted to hear.  :)  When I plotted out the
arc back in August 2004, the whole idea was to be peeling back another layer
of the onion in each sub-arc, finally revealing a core that was adequately
foreshadowed yet still a surprise.

     Well, I DO plan on lizard men, yes.  It'd almost be criminal NOT to have
'em.  However, keep in mind that there's a second planetary lifeforce OTHER
than the Leviathan...the plants had their own voice.  It's not just Peregryn
vs. Leviathan.  And then there's the Viaus to consider.  And that's before
Q'Nos puts his hoof in the ring....
